    For those of us (me included) who have been complaining about the poor exchange rate resulting in high prices from Steam, Steam has added the Steam European Currency Beta, allowing us Europeans to pay in our respective currencies.
    Which means the majority of games are £30 or less for us UK gamers! Rejoice!

    Not to mention, if the exchange rate changes in our favour (though I doubt it will for a long time), we can disable the beta and buy in dollars.

    Still cheaper for me to pay in dollars instead of Euros, although it would be kinda nice if they made it possible to pay in SEK instead of Euros.

    When you pay with Euros it includes VAT so it should be:
    $12.49=€9.99

    Meh, well it's cheaper for us British people, so I'm not complaining. I also can't understand the Valve hate, they're an amazing company and have been very much behind keeping the PC alive as a game platform over the last few years.
